2What is wrongful death?
Wrongful death is when a person’s death is caused by the wrongful actions or negligence of another.
3Can you file a wrongful death suit if the deceased never held a job?
Yes. If the deceased never held a job, he/she may have contributed in some other way to the family. A good example would be a stay-at-home mom or dad. They contribute services, guidance, and nurturing to the family. These contributions could be considered as "pecuniary losses" in a wrongful death action. However, your attorney will be able to guide you more specifically.
4What is duty of care?
Duty of care is defined as one person who has an obligation to act a certain way to another. In terms of a wrongful death, an obvious example would be an elderly nursing home patient who depends on the care of one of the nurses. If the nurse acted negligently and it resulted in the death of the senior, it could be argued that the nursing home breached the duty of care.
